Turmeric is a root in the ginger family with a mild flavor and a distinct color you might associate with with yellow curry.


It’s been used medicinally in both India and China for hundreds and hundreds of years.


Curcumin is the super substance found in turmeric, which is why the spice has been used in Indian and Chinese medicine for hundreds and hundreds of years.
Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.

According to HealthLine, “Curcumin has powerful antioxidant effects. It neutralizes free radicals on its own but also stimulates your body’s own antioxidant enzymes.”
